I stand here
I dance in the sunlight
A warm breeze blows over me.
I contemplate the movement
Of the seasons
Was it not just cold
Did it not just seem summer would never come?
And yet here we are
Looking over a river
Dancing underneath the beating sun
Laughing under a star filled sky.
Skirts rise and billow out
We are spinning
We are singing along.
The joy of dancing children
All God’s beings
Moving in a sort of praise and gratitude
For this very moment.
Let’s continue to dance away the day
And spin underneath the canopy of the stars
Through summer and into fall
Even when we move inside for the quietude of winter.
Let’s remain grateful
For the way our bodies move
For the way the music reminds us
Of our certain unity and nature to be love in action.
Grant us the ability
To remember gentle summer breezes
On the coldest days ahead
When the dancing is done alone.
